Rainbow Bridge, Minato

#24 of 2,123 in Things to do in Tokyo
Stroll across Rainbow Bridge, a 798 m (2,618 ft) suspension bridge spanning northern Tokyo Bay and offering sweeping views of the city. Completed in 1993, the bridge includes walkways on the north and south sides of its lower deck. From the north side, see the inner harbor and iconic tower; from the south, observe the bay and, on particularly clear days, catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji in the distance. At night, colorful lights illuminate the bridge, while walkers stop at the benches positioned near the support towers to talk and reflect on scenery. Note that bicycle riding is not permitted.

    You can climb up the free elevators from the Kainan area and walk your way underneath the bridge to reach Odaiba. For those who are fit, try!  more »

    Because it was a seaside hotel, looked good. At night I than the Bay Bridge is nice felt.

    Figure pales compared with the size of the bridge itself is a huge bridge of the Seto Inland Sea, is at the entrance of the city buildings to background, stretching the urban landscapes even more accentuate is looking good. Also sweeping views from the bridge of Tokyo skyscrapers, is admirable. Also great opportunities is not a view from the sea.

    I dressed like a Mario character and hired a gokart to drive across this bridge overlooking Tokyo city. Highly recommended. I noticed there were pedestrians walking across it also

    Love walking across the Rainbow Bridge, get to see Tokyo and Odaiba on either side. It can get a little nerve-wracking if there are strong winds or lots of trucks driving by. Bicycles will need to be rolled across instead of ridden.

    You can walk or jogging. Recommend in sunset

    There is a monorail going over the bridge and you can walk. The illumination at night is very impressive! A must see if you are in Tokyo.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
